It’s a lesson every mom will learn soon enough: Prepping them for the first day can be a project in itself. Aside from making checks on the school-supplied list, there’s stocking their closets with all of those 8-to-3 musts: pieces for gym class, pieces for the playground, pieces that are perfect for picture day and beyond.
The key? Go for new takes on the wear-with-all styles that make the grade fall after fall. For him? Denim, chinos, cool graphic tees and a variety of button-downs that are just like dad’s. For her? Throw-on-and-go dresses (with cute-as-can-be details!), comfy ballet flats and backpacks large enough for her lunch and supplies.
Score them all, and your mornings will be a breeze. In one cramming-slash-shopping session? Your last days of summer will be easy, too. (Tip: We’ve got ‘em all. Check out our Insane Deals!)
